YouTube

The YouTube app for iOS sees an update today adding support for Slide Over and Split View multitasking. Even though iOS 9’s multitasking functionality has finally reached the app, picture-in-picture support remains to be seen. Users will note that background audio is available for current YouTube RED subscribers. The newly introduced multitasking functionality should help to appease those who’ve longed for the ability to catch up on their favorite YouTubers while also flicking through email or other apps.

What’s New in Version 11.10

– Added slide over and split view support – Moved home tabs into navigation bar for iPad in landscape mode – Fixed bug that prevented URLs in video descriptions from opening

YouTube is available for free in the iOS App Store and is compatible with iPhones and iPads. Users still looking for a YouTube PIP solution can look at the previously covered CornerTube app, available from the iOS App Store for $1.99.
